Gone With The Wind
Digital Art - Graphics
The Renaissance poem The Sorrows of Love or Erotica Pathemata was one of the basic motives of this romantic image. This picture in a way is a loose narrative of the mythological story of Apollo and Daphne from the Roman-Greek Hellenistic period of history. I created a modified version of the famous marble sculpture of Gian Lorenzo Bernini which is depicting the final, culmination moment of Apollo chasing nymph Daphne. Even though, the magnificent statue that is the classics of Baroque artistic style is the leitmotif which is taking the center place of the artwork and center of attention, it is not all about these two mythical characters. The fabled couple is not an illustration to the legend, but is rather a historical reference or sublime allusion to an exalted love and sorrow tale, the story which is old as the world. Once upon a time there was love, and it is gone now, the end.
